HORTON, Kan. (AP) - Horton police have tentatively identified the victim of house explosion in northeast Kansas.
The Horton Police Department said Monday that the body found inside the home Friday in Horton is believed to be that of 58-year-old Ronnie L. Tulk.
Police Chief Beau Hasenohr says tests are still being conducted to confirm that the body is Tulk's.
Hasenhor says in a news release that preliminary reports indicate the explosion was caused by gas but an investigation is continuing.
Tulk lived alone at the house, which was severely damaged by the explosion and fire.
Kansas Gas Service spokeswoman Dawn Ewing said testing at the site found no leak in the company's natural gas system.
